Back in January, Spain fell in love with Alfred and Amaia’s Eurovision entry “Tu canción” (Your Song). After winning the national selection, this young couple will be the first duet to represent Spain since 1975. Here are the lyrics and the English translation.

On that night, the couple, whose blossoming relationship has endeared them to the nation, started their performance opposite each other on opposing pianos. But as their harmonies swelled they stood and eventually held hands and caressed, convincing viewers that this wasn’t merely a duet. It was love.

The Tu cancion lyrics are tender to a T: “I feel like I’m dancing for the first time/ You’re the art that sweetens the skin/ From my travelling mind, that follows your feet…”

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time by your side, oh

Amaia and Alfred – “Tu canción” at OT Eurovision Gala

“Tu canción” lyrics – Amaia and Alfred (Spain Eurovision 2018)

Original lyrics

Nunca llegué a imaginar
Que viajar a la luna sería real
Lo pones todo al revés
Cuando besas mi frente y descubro por qué

Ya no puedo
Inventarlo

Siento que bailo por primera vez
Eres el arte que endulza la piel
De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies
Siento que bailo por primera vez junto a ti, oh

Sé que en ti puedo encontrar
Esa voz que me abriga si el tiempo va mal
Todo es perfecto si estás
A mi lado creando una nueva ciudad

Siento que bailo por primera vez
Eres el arte que endulza la piel
De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies
Siento que bailo por primera vez

Ya no puedo
Inventarlo
Solo quiero
Tu canción, oh, oh, oh

Siento que bailo por primera vez
Eres el arte que endulza la piel
De mi mente viajera que sigue tus pies
Siento que bailo por primera vez junto a ti, oh

English translation

I would have never imagined
that travelling to the Moon could be something real
You turn everything upside down
when you kiss my forehead I discover the reason

I can no longer
Invent it

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time
You’re the art that sweetens the skin
From my traveller mind, that follows your feet
I feel like I’m dancing for the first time by your side, oh

I know that in you I can find
that voice that warms me when the weather’s not good
Everything’s perfect if you’re
by my side creating a new city

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time
You’re the art that sweetens the skin
From my traveller mind, that follows your feet
I feel like I’m dancing for the first time by your side, oh

I can no longer
Invent it
I just want
Your song, oh, oh, oh

I feel like I’m dancing for the first time
You’re the art that sweetens the skin
From my traveller mind, that follows your feet
I feel like I’m dancing for the first time by your side, oh

I’m confused. Why are you doing this for Spain and not France? And why didnt you do this to other entries last year? I hope this favoritism wont hit Spain hard…
